ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Friday was the final day for “Park It on the Market” back-to-school supply drive.

The goal of the event was to fill an entire school bus with school supplies for local children.

The event was sponsored by Alcova Mortgage, Downtown Roanoke Incorporated, Roanoke City Schools and the YMCA.

Kim Bratic of Alcova Mortgage said the excitement she had as a child when going back to school was enhanced when she received new back-to-school supplies. She hopes that, in these tough economic times, these supplies will give a big boost to students.

Donations are still being taken at Alcova Mortgage’s office at the Roanoke City Market.
